I extend a warm Southern welcome to everyone on the 
~ Eat My Valentine Southern Blog Tour ~
I am thrilled to be kicking off the tour with a super SIMPLE version of 
a traditional southern dessert .
As I always say: 
"Life is short .... have dessert first" !
Enjoy the tour!

Valentine's Day is fast approaching!

Although, I am not a cook, myself, I know that many of you will be serving up some 

scrumptuos meals for your loved ones. Of course, you will want to have something sweet for your sweetie, to top it all off. 

Why not try something Simply Southern?
I have a recipe that is VERY Simple and VERY Southern.
It is even simple enough for a totally (Un)Domestic Diva like me!

I got it from a blogger friend several years ago when she added it to a post/review about my "little book of southern poems”, Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia.
I really was AMAZED at how simple it was!
I even added it as a permanent fixture on my website!
Check it out at    .
